If you are asking what it looks like, it should be lower on the left side and higher on the right side.

Pretend there is a general line following the direction that the dots are pointing. My teacher always told us that there is a little man that always starts walking on the very left of the graph. If he has to walk upward, it is a positive correlation, and if he has to walk downward, it is a negative correlation. I hope I helped a little!

Thanks,you did help, but the multiple choice answers are as y decreases, x increases etc. I know about the positive coorelation and stuff, i just need to know what happens WHEN you have a positive coorelation. Thanks for your help!
